Public Service Announcement

I have something to share with all y'all. It is a trick that I use all the time, but I often neglect to share this secret with others.

Google text. Does everyone know about this? Because you should. You can get everything from restaurant locations to movie times to definitions of words that you don't understand.


For restaurants, businesses, etc.
Text: restaurant. city, state
or
restaurant. zip code
then send to GOOGL (46645)
Magically you get the address and phone number texted back to you.

For definitions of words you may not know
Text: D. floozie
or
D. mystery word
send to GOOGL (46645)
Bling-a-ling! You have a text. It says:
Glossary:
floozie: streetwalker: a prostitute who attracts customers by walking the streets
Source:
worldnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn

Genius right? You should use it, the reasons are five-fold.

1) It is a cinch.
2) It is free. (Just your standard text messaging rate, but I think most people have unlimited now).
3) It is super fast. Usually under 2 seconds wait time.
4) You will have a wealth of knowledge at your fingertips at all times.
5) It is the technological equivalent of an ancient-Chinese-cure-all-remedy.
